KUALA LUMPUR - Relatives of passengers aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines plane will be taken to the KL International Airport to be flown to an undisclosed location Sunday morning, state news agency Bernama reported.

The agency also quoted an unidentified relative of one of the passengers as saying that Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife are scheduled to meet the relatives after dawn.

More than 30 hours after international flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished from radar screens, the whereabouts of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft are yet to be determined.

Malaysia Airlines said in an early Sunday statement that no evidence of any wreckage had been located and that the search and rescue mission continued at sea overnight while airborne efforts would resume at daylight.

The Malaysian government has expressed its welcome and appreciation for the assistance and cooperation from China, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and the United States.
